Debuting at E3 2018, Future Tense will be Available as Bonus Content to Players On Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam on June 29!
This June marked a truly crazy month in LONDON, UK as Activision Blizzard, Inc. gave fans another reason to play CrashTM all summer long with the introduction of a brand-new level called “FUTURE TENSE”! If you don’t know about this already, where have you been???? On June 29, you can double jump, spin and shout as not only will you be able to play the original N. Sane Trilogy on PC, Playstation 4 Xbox One AND Nintendo Switch but you will also have DLC which will include additional levels never played before.
Developed by Vicarious Visions, Future Tense brings an extra layer of difficulty to Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped’s Future world, as players dodge rockets, destroy robots and leap over lasers while ascending a massive futuristic skyscraper. The idea for these levels came from the unreleased waterfall levels of the original games and soon franchise fans (and speed runners) will have something BRAND WUMPING NEW in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy that will challenge even the most skilful Crash players.
Not only will you be able to explore new levels as the Bright Red Bandicoot but also take on some familiar enemies and hazards in new and fun ways. If it is anything like the original be ready to re-run levels repeatedly to explore hidden areas and experience unexpected moments, including a challenging Death Route. Future Tense will be accessible via a new platform in the Warp Room of Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, and playable at any point in the game’s progression.
“Adding a new level to Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was something we always wanted to do, and introducing Future Tense allows us to give all Crash players something new to play just in time for the multi-platform release,” said Jennifer Oneal, Studio Head at Vicarious Visions.
“We hope Future Tense will allow players to re-experience that feeling from the good ‘ol days when they first cracked open a Crash Bandicoot game and had to figure out how to get past a brand-new challenge, or find that one last crate,” added Future Tense level designers Ben Dorsey and Stephen Ivanauskas. “And frankly, Crash Bandicoot levels are fun to make!”
In addition to Future Tense’s arrival to the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, fans on new platforms will also receive Stormy Ascent as a bonus level starting June 29th. Existing Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy owners on PlayStation 4 can download Stormy Ascent this week, as a bonus level at no additional charge from the PlayStation Store. Released last year on PlayStation 4, Stormy Ascent is the notoriously difficult, unfinished level from the original Crash Bandicoot game, finished and remastered to challenge the most hardened of Crash fans!
The world’s favourite marsupial will SPIN his way to new players on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Steam on June 29, 2018, marking the first time that the original three games Crash Bandicoot , Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped will be playable on these platforms. The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is available now on PlayStation4. Existing Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy owners on PlayStation 4 can download the bonus level from the PlayStation Store on June 29th as well. Fans can pre-order the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for all new platforms now.
